Freeing up storage space

As you use HTC Desire 826, you'll accumulate data and fill its storage capacity over time. Here are some tips on how to free up phone storage space.

Run the storage wizard

Free up phone storage space by uninstalling apps and deleting files you no longer want to keep. In Settings, tap Storage > Phone storage > Make more space.

Manage photos and videos

  • After taking continuous camera shots, keep only the best shot. Discard the rest, if you don't need them.
  • After editing a photo or trimming a video, the original file is kept. Delete original files or move them elsewhere, such as to your computer.
  • If you're only sending videos through MMS, use a lower resolution. Hi-res video takes up more space. In Camera settings, tap Video Quality to change the resolution.

Remove unused themes

Themes can quickly consume up storage space because themes can include images, sounds and icons. Remove themes you're not using. See Deleting a theme.

Back up data and files

Keep only the most recent data in your apps and files that you often need to use. You can back up your other data and files. For some tips, see Ways of backing up files, data, and settings.

Remove or disable apps

Uninstall apps that you've downloaded if no longer need them. Preinstalled apps can be disabled when you're not using them. See Disabling an app.

Move apps to the storage card

Third-party apps that you've downloaded and installed can be moved to the storage card if you've set up the card as internal storage. See Moving apps and data between the phone storage and storage card and Moving an app to the storage card.
